There’s a lot to say about NOVA and its past. Just trying to find a title for this post was an effort in futility. Poor workplace ethics, lawsuits, bankruptcy, death from overwork, buy-outs…
But that NOVA Rabbit sure is cute!
Actually, it would seem that the company has reformed, but truth be told, I was surprised that NOVA was even around anymore. The countless times I walked by their building in my local downtown, I never noticed them perched floors above, under new ownership… and I wondered – why not dissolve the company entirely and start fresh? Why not erase the name from all storefronts and try again? Brand recognition surely must work against a company with a history like NOVA’s.
…but again…. that NOVA Rabbit is so cute.
There’s nothing I can write here that doesn’t seem to be common knowledge at this point. But if there’s one thing that can’t be said enough…
I’ve been doing a lot of draft work on the next episode of MAPLE LEAVES for EYES. This time around there are going to be a lot more RPG elements, so I’ve been trying to think through an interesting system that works.
The “Hunger Lives at 24 Sussex” Saga continues with Marjorie and Louis going up against the PLANT GHOST of the Ontario forest, GREEN STEVE.
This is honestly my LEAST favourite part of the creative process – sharing. *shudder* I love animating and bringing drawings to life. And I love looking back on my old cartoons and seeing what I did well, and what I outta do better next time.
But after I finish a cartoon, I’m at a creative low: “WHAT DO I DO NEXT?! DID I DO THIS AS BEST I COULD?! WHAT IF EVERYONE HATES THIS NEW CARTOON?!”
Here’s to getting through the bends! I hope you all enjoy the newest episode of SKY PIGS!
And some former Prime Ministers may make an appearance.
So please stay tuned, everyone! I am doing all of this out of my own time and pocket, and the more support you show, the better I know how to entertain you! :) Plz, LIKE, COMMENT and Shaaaaaaaaare!!! ^_^
While you’re waiting, please check out the episodes so far:
